I find it surprising that you don't know who he is. But I'm more surprised by the fact that no one here knows who that guy next to ZUN is.

He's helped in the art of several games, and is one of ZUN's close friends. I've never heard of his name, but he's living the weeaboo dream of living in Japan and working on Doujinsoft.

ZUN cancelled the Touhou anime for the same reasons he does not encourage official translations. He's what /g/ would call "a freetard".

Isn't Marisa Western or at least westaboo?
I thought the reason Zun calls himself "Shanghai Alice" is because Shanghai is a city where east and west meet, and he wants to have that reflected in his titles.

It's not a misspell:

Marisa = マリサ-> mah r/li sa -> write as an l instead of r because of Japanese grammar = Malisa ~ Melissa.

They don't have an 'l' sound, so it's approximated with the ら row. So her name is validly Melissa.

Also, Reimu's name is validly 'Lame' in English. (レイム= Leimu = Lay m (u is almost silent) .

This is, of course, based on the kanji pronunciation; bit it is allowable in Japanese to simply 'decide' how a kanji is pronounced (like how can in Japanese = 缶 = kann), so he may have done this on purpose.

Not a letter. It's more like deriving different pronunciations/meanings based on a single word. For example:
Read: to pull information from the written word.
Read: to have pulled information from the written word in the past.
They are 'written' the same, but are pronounced differently and mean different things.

They generally avoid doing this because it'd make the language confusing as shit, but it is allowable (like light's name in Deathnote). It's generally used for foreign words that become ingrained into the literature/science/when someone wants to sound fancy.

Lost post? Fitting captcha to go with: you'll afaile



For more fun tidbits:

Japan had it's own native spoken language before China gave them kanji. They spent the next ~400 years bashing their spoken language with the Chinese written language until they reached something similar to Japanese today. (So, the idea of giving kanji to foreign 'words' isn't really new, it's kinda how it started).
However, before that, they would actually write in Chinese, and then 'mark' the sentence based on how it should be read in Japanese (because Japanese is SOV and Chinese is SVO like English). So, in order to read a document, you'd have to be fluent in both written Chinese and spoken Japanese.
Confusing as FUCK.

Also, Japan = じっぽん and is the Chinese pronunciation of 日本 (Nippon or Nihon depending on your pronunciation choice).

But, it does seem ZUN has some understanding of English, or is very good with a translator, because some of the English titles are disconnected from their Japanese counterparts yet still make sense in English.

>> No.7420547

Well, in order to program you have to have a semi-decent understanding with English, since all of the keywords are English, and probably most of the documentation for anything is English as well.
But yeah, it's pretty clear ZUN knows English even better than just programming would require.
